Lace Heart

Hello bloggers!  I started today's card by using some Pearlescent watercolour inks on a piece of white card.  I used Lemon Glacier, Jade Sparkle and Turquoise Cascade randomly all over.  Once dry, I used the Double Stitched Squares and cut a frame in the centre of the card.  I added mounting foam to raise the frame, then attached all the pieces to another piece of card.  I added a slightly larger white frame around the outside.  Next, I inked and cut the Lace Heart Stampcut die twice.  I used Distress markers to colour one full heart and just the inner heart on the second die cut.  I glittered the base heart then I cut around the inner heart and added it with mounting foam and glue to the other heart.  I added the heart inside the frame with foam.  Using the Heart Leaf Flowers, I made three flowers and glittered them with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I arranged the flowers in opposite corners around the heart.  I used the Magnolia Corner cut in white and nipped apart to add accents around the flowers.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x 7"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue and all that visit. Such a pretty card all round, I'm not one for green in anything - sweets, drinks, although love green veg but other than that not a lover of green but this smiles warmly so yes, it's a pretty Thursday morning in my living room.
Hope you're well, enjoying life and are happy.
Love to all xxx

Hi Sue

I love the colours of the watercolour inks you’ve chosen. They give a beautiful effect. I like the centre square frame inside the other frame too. It makes the heart look even better. The magnolia corner and heart leaf flowers finish it off perfectly.

Love Helen xxx

Beautiful! You must have a good eye for colour as they always work so well together & while I’m not normally a green fan this combination is lovely. Thank you Sue.

Hi Sue

Love the elements and composition but not sure on the colour and that's from someone who would use green all the time if they could!!! But the idea is fab for inspiration...

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a very pretty card and having no sentiment it could be sent for many reasons. When I first looked at this on my phone I thought the colours of the background were too dark and very strong but now, on my laptop, they look much lighter and I like them much better.

Lovely vibrant colour to a beautiful card....luv Ursula xx

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Another Sue Wilson original card today and I really like it. Great idea to use a coloured frame around the heart and then a white one to frame everything. Love this composition.

A vibrant lovely card today, beautiful colors for the background and the sparkle finishes it off beautifully. I don't have Pearlescent watercolor inks, but I do have the Lace Heart Stampcut, and since I really like this design, I might try to make a similar card.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

I love green! It’s my favourite colour. This is a fabulous card. X

Clai01 said...

I don't use green that much unless doing florals/trees or seasons etc so will bear this inspirational background in mind x

CraftyJo said...

I love the background and the focal image - find the flowers a little bit too much though but then again, I'm not a lover of flowers on cards ;)
